Enjoy an indulgent Taiwanese Afternoon Tea at XU London, a quaint yet elegant teahouse in the heart of Soho.
It's found along Rupert Street in Chinatown and echoes the style of the social clubs and traditional teahouses of 1930s Taipei with wood panelling, sparse furnishings and brass details.
Begin with a glass of seasonal cold brew tea, with your choice of two teas from XU's extensive collection to accompany the food. Savoury dishes include char sui girolles puff, sweet potato taro dumpling and roasted turnip with chive oil steamed egg, followed by the chef's selection of authentic Taiwanese pastries. These include fried cinnamon mochi, set almond milk, Taiwanese pineapple cake and a Hei Tang cake.
Why not make it an extra special occasion by upgrading to one of their sparkling offers, with Sparkliling Hong Yu No 18. Tea for £25, a Sparkling Tea cocktail for £38 and Sparkling Rose for £40.
Its prime central location puts you just a stones-throw from Piccadilly and Leicester Square stations.
